Lil Bow Wow changes his name, *NSYNC's Chris Kirkpatrick gets animated & Dream loses a member - get the scoop here!

1 First Prince, then Puff Daddy, now Lil Bow Wow is changin' his name. Well, he's not exactly changin' it but he is droppin' the "Lil" part. From now on, this dog will be known as Bow Wow. Bow Wow, said on April 4, 2002, "You know what? Drop the Lil. Forget it. I'm Bow Wow. Besides, I'm growing up, I'm not little anymore. (I just decided) two weeks ago. I really got irritable. It's all these lil' cats, forget it. I'm Bow Wow now. Everything is just Bow Wow, no Lil Bow Wow."

What do you think of Bow Wow's name change?

1 *NSYNC's Joey Fatone and Lance Bass have dabbled in side projects, now Chris Kirkpatrick's is trying something other than Fuman Skeeto. Chris Kirkpatrick has signed on for a recurring vocal guest spot on the Nickelodeon cartoon, The Fairy OddParents. Chris will be the voice of his character - a pop singer named Chip Skylark. "The character Chip is just so corny," says Chris to Rollingstone. "It poked so much fun, I couldn't pass it up. It was the perfect opportunity to say we know what the stereotype is and we know what the joke is. The joke will be on everybody else, if, five to 10 years from now, we're still making hit records." Check out Nickelodeon for dates 'n times.

1 The 2002 Soul Train Music Awards (pre-taped show) aired from Los Angeles on April 6, 2002. Highlights included Miss Alicia Keys on and off the keys with her hit, Girlfriend, Jagged Edge and Nelly with Where The Party At and Usher performing U Don't Have to Call. Usher baby, with moves like that, you KNOW she's gonna call!

Winners included Alicia Keys (obviously,) Usher, Aaliyah, Jay-Z and Missy Elliot. Click here, for details on all the winners and pics too.

1 First J. Lo, now P. Diddy is losin' another dream girl. Melissa Schuman, from the girl group Dream, has left the band to pursue an acting career. P. Diddy and the girls have been holding auditions for a new member but the group may stay a trio. Dream is at work on their follow-up CD to 2001's It Was All A Dream.

1 Sarah McLachlan and her husband (and drummer) Ashwin Sood gave birth to a baby girl on Saturday, April 6th, 2002. They named her India and both Sarah and baby are doing well. Congrats!

1 I think his name change is good 'cuz hopefully he won't be lil all his life and there are too many lil people.
